this fiscal cliff and we're going to deal with it over the next few days or few weeks. but unfortunately, for our country, every american's quality of life is going to be lesser than it should be because now this is going to drag on to the debt ceiling. we're going to have the same thing play out. >> the president says he's not going to play games, not going to play politics. >> i think he should lay out the reductions. we set the precedent on a dollar for a dollar, dollar increase in debt ceiling for a dollar in reductions. i actually laid out a bill to do that this week with lamar alexander. but i think what's been missing here, candy, is it appears to me that the president either lacks the courage or the will to lay out those specific things that need to happen because i assure you, if he would lay those out, the house would take it up, the senate would take it up, and we could move this behind us and we can start this next year with the wind at our back in this fiscal issue behind us like most of us would like to do. >> you know and i know that's not going to happen in the short time
